Wounded !......not Fatally.

A lonesome wind now murmurs on the hill,
It moans a tale of woe in Nature's ear,
About a love that tasted bitter pill,
And now forlorn, must emptiness endear.

A man now droops his head beneath a cross,
One lonely snowdrop bowed, sad tears to spill,
He prays that God will heal the scars of loss,
And mind always, the girl that he loves still.

A new fire in his soul starts burning wild,
He must find love anew, lest all is lost,
Fresh lips to quench the flames from hearts beguiled,
The embers of past love to bear the cost.

Her soft kiss blown on gentle breeze so frail,
When passion comes 'twill ride on howling gale !

But I could read it well enough to know you need a hug
You have a super style Mick that differs greatly from western counterparts. I love to read your words, for they are a window into a world that I have never had the fortunate pleasure of ever visiting in real life.......nice job pal......cheers

Your sad poem was a true reflection of your feelings, but it held a glimmer of you you are still optimistic in moving on that's the biggest message. Well done youapplause
Fine sonneteering Mick, it's as well the wounds aren't fatal - which doesn't necessarily mean the scars ever heal. A really terrific closing couplet.


How are you my dear friend. This is sad and full of emotions depicting our being so hurt but I am sure it will get better..

To me moving on from my last relationship was the best thing I ever did - wish I had done it sooner. Still, when memories are good - we will hold on to them for ever.

Sure aren't I a past pupil from the
Fellsman University of great Sonnets,

Know the feeling... The painful stages everyone goes through...but others heal sooner than others ...or do'they? Lovely sonnet Mick! I am in awe of you sonnet writing guys .. Only managed to write a couple of sonnets so far... It looks like I missed out on The Fellsman's University of Great would have helped me a lot professor
